The 4 pillars of reaching any goal

The 4 pillars of reaching any goal
By Douglas Vermeeren

th-1

I am a firm believer that a goal that is well articulated is the first and most important step to achieving your goals. In fact, a mantra often repeated at my seminars is that, “a goal that is specific and clear, becomes attainable and near.” However after conducted extensive interviews and research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers the description is not only the first step. It’s also where most people stop.

My research has determined that in order for a goal to be achieved there are 4 other essential factors that must be included with the description in order to make it achievable.

Naturally I am assuming that you are already committed to the goal and your reasons why you want that goal are big enough for you personally. The idea that you have to be it before can have it is also true. But I don’t believe you have to be it in order to start going after it. What you will become will take place during the pursuit of the goal. Perfectionists need not apply.

So here are the four things that I have seen consistently repeated among top achievers when they set and achieve their goals. (And naturally I see people struggle all the time when they are missing one of these things.) Consider these four elements like legs on a table. Without all four the table isn’t able to stand properly.

1)Strategies & techniques
All goals require you to learn and employ techniques and strategies that are specific to that goal. You will need to gain that specialized knowledge and skill set that will enable you to effective accomplish the goal.

thOne of my original success interviews was former NHL player and Hockey Night in Canada TV host Kelly Hrudey. When Kelly was a boy he was discouraged because he was not that great of a hockey player. He wanted to measure up to the others so bad that he dedicated hours and hours of practice to learn the art of goaltending. As a boy these skills did not come easy but after years of practice and practice he began to surpass the others around him. Getting to playing professional hockey is very competitive. The Huffington post did a study on how hard it is to make it into the NHL. They found that only 0.16 of the hockey players who had NHL dreams ever made it into the league and only 0.02 percent will ever be able to make a career out of Hockey.

kellyhrudeyKelly gained the skills to the level that not only did he get drafted into the NHL but he played for several teams, the New york Islanders, the Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks. He learned the game so well that he is now a TV commentator on Sportsnet.

It’s not enough to just have the dream or even the belief that you can achieve your goal. You must gain the skills too.

2) Effort
All goals require new habits and a rearranging of priorities. If it was something that was already part of your everyday life you would have accomplished it already. One of the challenges most people experience when pursuing a major goal is that they are often surprised at the amount of hard work or effort. The hours can be long and the investment of effort, resources and even money can be extensive.

Recently I met with a new realtor who had set a goal to become on of the top agents in his city. As he studied those in his area who were consider the top agents he was immediately startled at the hourly commitments that these individuals were putting into their business. He was also astonished at how much they invested in marketing. Determined to reach his goal to be among them he began to move forward with the same fierceness. While he is not yet considered the top in his town he is definitely on his way there. Recognize that effort will be required and if you want to rise above everybody else you have got to be willing to do more than anyone else.

3) Perseverance
Even if you gain the skills and put in effort getting to most high level goals require perseverance over time. Perseverance however means more than just continuing and putting in your time. It also means hanging in there when things get difficult and maybe even appear hopeless. Everyone has heard the story of all the challenges that Edison had working with the lightbulb. It is said that he failed more than 10,000 times before he found a way to stabilize the filament. While that may or may not have been the case there are countless examples of obstacles that all top achievers have experienced.

These challenges are not just experienced by those in our history books. Challenges will always be present when you are stretching to reach new endeavors. You may experience personal learning curves you as you struggle to apply new ideas and concepts. You may experience moments of doubt that come through your own feelings or from those close to you. You may experience resistance from customers who are unsure of your offering. You may even experience conflict with competition as they try to keep you out of their business. All of these obstacles and more will try you to the core to see how bad you really want what your trying for.

Morris-GoodmanSeveral courageous people come to my mind when it comes to perseverance. One that is worth mentioning here is my friend Morris Goodman. Some of you may have seen him in the hit movie The Secret or my film The Opus. Morris had been a successful insurance broker and decides to buy himself a small airplane. One his very first solo flight he had a power failure and crashes the plane into some power lines. As a result of the accident he broke his neck and crushed his spinal cord. He immediately lost all ability to perform every single bodily function except blinking his eyes. The doctors doubted that he would even survive…but somehow he did.

Through a code of blinking and using a chart to identify letters on a chart Morris spelled out that he would walk again. The doctors doubted it would ever happen. He then surprised them even further by saying he would walk again by Christmas. No only did the doctors doubt but they even suggested he was dilusional.

This is where the lesson in perseverance appears. Morris began little by little to work on whatever muscles he could get to respond. There were days it was painful. There were days when it appeared that no progress occurred. There were discouraging days when he felt like quitting. But he didn’t. Overtime muscles began to respond and remember. He worked and worked hard. He never gave up.

Then came Christmas and although he wasn’t fully walking Morris did walk those steps out the front door of the hospital as promised. Today he still struggles and things aren’t back to normal. they probably never will be. But he continues to persevere he is still setting and achieving goals today.

4) Support
The things that I find most people seem to forget in trying to achieve their goals is that they are never alone. Mount Everest has never been climbed by a single individual without a team and the same is true of big goals in real life. All major and massive things require support. It is important when you set out to achieve your biggest goals that you also recognize that support and help is available to you too. And the amazing thing is that this help is far more accessible than most people believe.

The first step to acquiring help to get to your goals comes from being extremely clear about your mission and what you a re trying to achieve. If you know how to articulate your mission clearly and sustinctly you can ask for help from others in a way that they can say yes.

In my own personal life I have been consistently surprised at how many people are willing to help you solve problems and get to your goals. When I created my first film The Opus there were many new challenges to overcome. many people thought that I had bit off far more than I could chew. Especially when I expressed who I wanted involved and the scope of the project. But there were those that believed in me and my mission. I’ll never forget specifically how supportive Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen were when it came to shooting the film. They made themselves very available in the midst of a busy conference. Joe Vitale wrote amazing blogs posts promoting the film and sent out notices through his network. Marci Shimoff came and spoke for us at our premiere launch and helped get the word out. John Demartini has promoted the film actively around the world and has since appeared in two other of my films. There were so many others that helped as well that I wish I could name. But as I think back about how the help was able to arrive it was all connected to my ability to articulate when support I needed.

Great things are always built by synergy rather than selfishness. Too often those who fail to get to their goals fail because they are trying to hang onto all the praise, money, opportunity or power. There is truth to the old saying that says it’s amazing what can be accomplished when we don’t care who gets the credit.

No matter what your goals are the above 4 pillars will help you. Consider them carefully and explore how you can implement them more directly in your pursuit of your goal and you will achieve success.

The Speakers Secret Weapon: High Profit Speaker

Speaker_Training_Systems copy 2The Speakers Secret Weapon: High Profit Speaker
By Terri McCoullough

Are you a professional speaker? If you are then you understand some of the challenges that the speaking business can present. How can you find more stages to present on? How can you grow your brand and establish yourself as an expert? How can you create products, workshops and seminars that people will buy? And then there’s the question that seems to challenge eery speaker in the business – How can you sell it more successful from the stage?

If these are questions that you’ve wondered about then you’ll be glad to hear about High Profit Speaker. Speakers who have been through the program are calling it their secret weapon.

High Profit Speaker is a training organization focused on giving speakers the business tools they need to succeed. Unlike other speaker training program it does not focus exclusively on delivery from the stage or development of content. While it does help with those things it assumes that you already have a pretty good handle on your areas of expertise. What it focuses on are the things that most programs leave out – the business. High Profit Speaker helps speakers create effective business models, sales funnels, conversion systems, attract more media and PR, creating product that sells easily and then teaches you multiple effective systems for selling from the stage stress free and with ease.

The founder of High Profit Speaker, Douglas Vermeeren has quite an impressive track record. As a speaker he was able to earn more than 1.6 Million dollars in his first 6 months as a speaker. He was able to create relationships with top speakers like Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, John Demartini, Marcie Shimoff, Bob Doyle, Marie Diamond, Morris Goodman, John Gray, Loral Langemiere, Marshall Sylver, Randy Gage, Raymond Aaron and many others to create 3 hit personal development films. (The Opus, The Gratitude Experiment and The Treasure Map.) One of which is now available in 23 languages worldwide through Random House. He has co-authored 3 books in the Guerrilla Marketing series with Jay Conrad Levinson and recently finished a book for the Dummies Series. He is also a sought after media expert and arguably the most featured personal development on Television today. He has shared the stage with nearly every major speaker in the world and has spoken on nearly every continent on the globe.

Now why would you need to know all this? Because the majority of the trainings for High Profit Speaker are taught by Vermeeren himself. If you want to learn how to do the kinds of things that he has done in his speaking career then it makes sense to go to the source.

As a resource for speakers the company High Profit Speaker has consistently been rated as the top resource available today. Vermeeren was also invited by the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers to present his tools at the CAPS national conference in Halifax his very first year as a member. This is astounding considering many seasoned speakers never receive such an invite.

The speaking business is not an easy industry to be involved in. It is competitive and moves at a very fast pace. If you are looking to succeed it makes sense to find a partner who can help take you to highest levels in the shortest period time. If you are ready to become a speaker with a thriving successful business then you need this secret weapon. If you are ready to take your career to the next level then look no further than High Profit Speaker.

Monthly Millionaire Mentor Program coming to Las Vegas for One day special event!

Do you want to learn what it takes to become a millionaire? Do you want to learn techniques to accelerate your wealth growth in todays economy? Do you want to discover tools that anyone can apply to create a fortune? If you answered yes to any of these questions you need to be in Las Vegas on April 30th, 2011.

This one day event will feature several powerful and impressive speakers including:

Sally St.John, Louis Lautman, Aimmee Kodachian

…and Douglas Vermeeren.

Monthly Millionaire Mentor

Monthly Millionaire Mentor

Mr. Vermeeren is the CEO of the Monthly Millionaire Mentor program.

After conducting extensive research into the lives of more than 400 of the world’s top achievers, much in the style of Napoleon Hill, he made $1,000,000 in 180 days starting with just $1. Since that time he has been teaching others superior and little known ways for growing their wealth securely and consistently in his coaching and mentoring programs.

Vermeeren is the creator of the film The Opus (Featuring Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe Vitale, John DeMartini, Marci Shimoff, Bob Doyle, Morris Goodman, Bill Bartmann and others.) Vermeeren is the author of several books including the latest ‘Guerrilla’ book with Jay Conrad Levinson, ‘Guerrilla Achiever’ and ‘The Millionaire Myth.’ (With foreword by Bob Doyle from The Secret.) Vermeeren has been highly successful helping many to take giant steps towards their financial freedom.

Why is a mentor important? And what would you look for in a mentor? 

Let’s say that your objective wasn’t just to learn about growing wealth. Let’s say it was something a little more dangerous. For example consider the following question:

If you had to walk through a field of explosive land mines which option would you choose?

a) To attempt to go through alone.

b) To go with some one who also had never been through.

c) Go with a person who knew the safe way through.

d) Read a book about it and give it your best shot.

Naturally, the correct answer is C) Go with a person who knew the safe way through. Unfortunately too often people try to go through life and create a life of wealth focused on one of the other three options. Their results are  generally unproductive.

To get to the best results in the quickest time possible you need a mentor who can help you recognize the dangers, time-wasters and pitfalls that will take you off course or even keep you from completing your goals.

The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program is such a program. It is the first program of its kind that involves an ongoing relationship with your mentor and not just a one-time seminar. It is also the first program to take the participants through the process of the education all the way through to implementation. What that means is that you no longer have to wonder what to do next when you hit the inevitable challenges that will appear on your path. Growing your wealth exponentially is not a get rich quick or easy venture. If you want to do it correctly there will be many thins to learn ahead. This program ensures that you get it!

The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program – The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program is a mentorship opportunity that gives you direct support to grow your wealth from individuals who have amassed considerable personal wealth and are now teaching others how to do it also. This program differs from most programs in that participants are involved in a long term relationship with an actual mentor with real world applicable experience in growing wealth. Rarely has anyone ever seen tremendous wealth or lasting change occur from a one time seminar. Generally a person gets started with their new found education, but the most they run into an obstacle the seminar did not teach them to expect they become paralyzed. This is the first program that takes you through the process of understanding what you need to do all the way through implementation.

The program also makes accessible to its participants many exclusive opportunities including live events, mastermind opportunities with other millionaires (and Billionaires), extensively researched education materials, support for business growth and the opportunity to participate in carefully selected wealth expanding investments. (Currently this group is associated with over 70 million dollars in global assets*)

While their education programs are available to anyone, actual membership in the program is limited to smaller groups. The program prides itself on results and that comes from smaller groups in various geographical locations. ‘When the groups get to large the one-on -one interaction diminishes and the financial opportunities become stretched among too many members.’ Says founder and CEO Douglas Vermeeren.

He is also the creator of the film The Opus, which many people consider the sequel to the hit personal development film The Secret. This film features many well-known personal development leaders like Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Joe vitale, Marci Shimoff, Bob Doyle, John Demartini, Morris Goodman, Bill Bartmann and others. But the most recent activity that Vermeeren is engaged in is probably creating the most excitement in the media and is highly relevant to this program, The 1 X 180 Million Dollar Experiment. In this experiment Vermeeren will utilize several of the startling wealth growth techniques utilized in the Monthly Millionaire Mentor program to create $1,000,000 in 180 days and he will do it starting with only one dollar.
